What needs to happen to bring hockey back is the NHL needs to make some concessions to the PA in order to get the cap linkage down to 50%, on top of the make whole and honoring the contracts they signed.
Because it stated the middle ground

They put 43% but everyone knew that meant they really wanted 50%

If they propose 50% upfront ,, NHLPA meets them at 54% and refuses to budge
